Day 4: Star Trek Sweater

To boldly go where I have never gone before.

Ok, I think I’ve worn a week of colour in my lifetime, but it’s been so long I really can’t remember when it last happened.

This shirt in particular has sat on the floor of my bedroom waiting – waiting to be dry cleaned, waiting to be worn, just waiting. And then, the occasion arose with this blog. I had this shirt and the blue sweater I wore yesterday, submitted for dry cleaning on the weekend and was thrilled that he said they would be ready by Tuesday. My black/grey wardrobe is in overabundance; the wardrobe of colours seems non-existent.

Now it’s been awhile since I wore this shirt, so last night when I realized that it’s been some time and it might not fit as it did several years ago (I won’t mention it again, you all know the reason why) I hastily washed a green sweater and a green and white shirt. With 4 days into possibly successfully completing this series of blog posts, I don’t want to fail now.

Your probably wondering why I call this my Star Trek shirt right? Well, look at it! To me it kind of looks like the shirts that they wore on that show minus the A that is located, I believe, on the top right side of the shirt.  (What does that stand for?) It’s kinda cool, kinda funky and it wouldn’t have been something that I would have picked for myself. My mother-in-law bought it for me at Christmas time at  least 3 years ago as she was convinced even back then, I should wear more colour. I know it’s been 3 years at least, because she’s been gone for that long and I haven’t worn it since she passed. As it turns out, my mother-in-law may have been on to something.

Yes, there is some black in the shirt. But it’s only along the edges so I’m counting this as fulfilling my colour requirement.

P.S. My dear friend, who asked that I wear something with a pattern.

I believe this counts as one.
